    Hey all.

    Got AAB overall at AS with the B in Physics! Pretty thrilled

    What's irritated me though is, in AQA PHYA2, I've scraped a C with 44/70 Raw marks. Now I'm not great at mechanics but I am 99% sure I did not lose 26 marks on that paper. (In most of my mocks, I got in the 55~60 range)

    As a result of this, I have only just scraped it onto the overall B boundary, gaining exactly 210.

    If I get my script back on priority I can read through it and decide whether or not to get a remark. Is anybody else doing this?

    I'm just scared it's going to get marked down. Would I be able to send for a second remark if this was the case?

    Cheers!

    get the script back, get a teacher to see f it's worth a re-mark before going for it.

    No, you can't go for a second re-mark.

    Cheers for the reply bud. On one hand I don't want to be dropped down to AAC. On the other hand, I really need all the marks I can get, given A2 Physics is supposed to be so difficult. I'd like a B overall in it really, same as this year.

    Oh yeah, when are the deadlines for getting your paper back and getting a remark, as a first year? My school is giving out completely wrong dates and I'm not sure what to believe. There's gonna be noone in school until Sept.
